Sometimes I am just in the mood for a good curry. I love the combination of flavors in this wonderful, flavorful, crave quenching dish.
THAI PUMPKIN AND CHICKEN CURRY
2 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons Thai green curry paste
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
500 grams of pumpkin or 1 acorn squash, peeled and diced
500 grams of boneless chicken, cubed
chopped basil leaves for garnish
Heat the oil in a large, heavy saucepan and stir in the curry paste. Saute for 1 minute to bring out the flavors.
Add 1/2 cup coconut milk, then add the pumpkin. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add the chicken and remaining 1 cup of coconut milk. Cover and simmer until cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve garnished with fresh basil.
